In October, the first seats in Levis' Stadium started to be put in place. Today the last one number 68,500 (or so) was screwed in. It's just the latest milestone for the $1.2 billion stadium, which will be home for the 49ers this year and which will host next year's Super Bowl.
Some facts about the seats, courtesy of the 49ers:
• They were manufactured in Hayward.
• In addition to cup-holders, each seat has a hook to store handbags, coats or other personal item
• There are more than 45,000 seats in the lower bowl, which is one of the largest in the NFL.
The first pro game at the stadium is Aug. 2, an MLS soccer match between San Jose and Seattle. Owner Jed York said the stadium should be complete about a month before that game. Some of the 49ers staffers - those that work on the stadium - already have moved into the building.
